“I can hear the world falling outside while all the birds and I stay safely burrowed”

Ahmed Abdel Aziz created is project first in 2011 with influences of Nine Inch Nails, Porcupine Tree, Tool and others creating an alternative, indie, electronica experiment called Booma.

Boomas’ new  EP Clean & Burrowed has two locations where it was recorded, one location was Cairo and one was Cape Town. Booma is the child of Ahmed Abdel Aziz. It is a musical project which mixes elements from rock, electronic and  other genres. Some of the tracks seems like that Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails could have composed themselves although the composition of Ahmed Abdel Aziz are somewhat more melodic than those of Trent Reznor.

Booma means in Arabic “Owl” which is the favorite bird of Ahmed Abdel Aziz the artist behind Booma. The lyrics and music has a minimalistic feeling with the sound of an acoustic guitar. In 2014 Booma released an EP which is called “Clean & Burrowed” and is available on his own page for download.

His lyrics are quite sketchy and reflects the sound in which it is embedded. The lyrics behind Clean are one with the sound and both of them could not work without them.

I don’t feel so clean
I can tell you what it is but what would you get what I mean?
Probably not. No, not so clean and it’s not dirt or the stains on my sleeve
I should go, I must leave

Combined with electronic elements which sounds like it was influenced by artists such as Trent Reznor but with their own experimental sound.

I can hear the rain falling outside while all the birds and I stay safely covered
I light up a smoke and reach one arm out, feeling the drops I am so lonely but alive

I will stay burrowed for all the rest of time
I will stay burrowed for all the rest of time

I can hear the world falling outside while all the birds and I stay safely burrowed

Ahmed Abdel Aziz is the mastermind behind Booma and the writing, mixing, recording and production is done by Aziz himself. He gets help from Ali Soliman on electronic beats and Mohamed Ashraf.
